MEDICAL CARD

Rise above the aches and pains with cannabis

What is a medical card?

If you are at least 18 with one of these qualifying medical conditions, then you are eligible for a medical card. A medical card will allow you to purchase medical cannabis products and pay lower taxes on them at 6%.

We’ve partnered with First Natural Wellness, which offers in-person and virtual appointments. First Natural Wellness also offers patients an Instant Medical Card at no extra cost.
